Attention to Detail

Attention to detail is on a 1 - 10 scale, and is scored based on the rate, and severity, of errors committed by the clinic according to the patients.

For example, a severe error might be failing to inform a patient of critical information, while a small error might be failing to call a patient with results.

CDC Success Rates

This is the most recent data from the CDC. The CDC cautions that it should not be used to compare doctors and clinics.

For more information please see our FAQs.

Where you see a “?” on the chart, a clinic has done fewer than 20 cycles in this category and age range, so the CDC says showing percentages from this small data set would be misleading and unreliable.

Dr Cooney was professional and compassionate, and helped me get through one of the worst experiences of my life...She was amazingly supportive when I had my miscarriage. She talked me through what to expect and how to handle it. When I was going through subsequent rounds of IUI there was nothing that stuck out as particularly good or bad. I wanted to have another check-in like the first time we sat down, where we discuss my history and prospects but including the in/fertility issues that have come up since that initial consult.
Great staff, beautiful clinic, and they're very accessible [at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals]. I was always able to talk to a nurse immediately or very shortly after reaching out. They made it feel personal, like they knew my partner and I. Big weakness: they require a couples consult with their resident psychologist...for any fertility treatment, and it was a miserable experience. My spouse and I already each have a separate therapist, so we have the support we need, and the meeting felt pushy, nosy, and judgemental.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Laura Cooney at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals?
Be sure to ask what happens next, and how this impacts future pregnancies.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Laura Cooney at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals?
No one wants to go through a miscarriage, but it does happen. When it happened to me I dealt with a lot of nurses, doctors, and other staff. Dr Cooney was professional and compassionate, and helped me get through one of the worst experiences of my life.
Describe the protocols Laura Cooney used in your cycles at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals and their degree of success.
The first IUI was completely natural. Used an OTC ovulation predictor kit and 1 vial of donor sperm. I got pregnant but miscarried. Had to wait 1 cycle of natural menstruation before trying again. 2nd IUI we used letrozole on cycle days 3-5, then the same process. Negative result. 3rd IUI we used letrozole but also an injection of ovidrel to trigger ovulation. I got a positive pregnancy test but it was a chemical pregnancy and I menstruated shortly thereafter. They are hesitant to escalate treatment because it is clear my body is capable of getting pregnant, and their rationale is that it just takes more tries to be successful. They did a HgbA1c and prolactin tests after the 3rd IUI which were normal.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals. (Assigned nurse: Vicky Slager-Neary)
She has been our primary point of contact throughout, and we've seen her more than any other clinician. She has been professional and has excellent bedside manner. Having had miscarriage I am desperate to avoid having more, but she treats them like necessary hazards to getting pregnant. I want to take escalate treatment and she wants to try the same thing multiple times. She's probably right that I will get pregnant that way, but having miscarriages along the way is a high price to pay, especially when my insurance would cover the escalated treatment.
Describe your experience with Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals.
Great staff, beautiful clinic, and they're very accessible. I was always able to talk to a nurse immediately or very shortly after reaching out. They made it feel personal, like they knew my partner and I. Big weakness: they require a couples consult with their resident psychologist, Dr Julianne Zweifel, for any fertility treatment, and it was a miserable experience. My spouse and I already each have a separate therapist, so we have the support we need, and the meeting felt pushy, nosy, and judgemental.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Laura Cooney at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals.
I don't recall the specifics. We have a $3000 deductible for our fertility insurance and we didn't meet it in our initial work up for the clinic. Our hysteroscopy cost maybe $300 before insurance, but after was only about $30.
What specific things went wrong at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals?
  • Failed to call with results
Describe the specific things that went wrong at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals.
I had blood tests to confirm my miscarriage, and we got the results electronically but no one from the clinic called to discuss them with us. It was around the holidays, so things were hectic at the clinic, but we knew the rest results indicated that I was having a miscarriage and we desperately needed someone to tell us what was going on. I finally called them the next day and they were closed for the holiday. I didn't get to talk to anyone until the next day, and it was a very stressed waiting period.

How was your experience with Christina Broadwell at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals?
Her approach is very grounded in science, and she appears to keep up with the latest developments. She does not seem keen to jump on board with new approaches unless there is sound science behind them. She manages to be both caring/compassionate and straight-forward. She did not volunteer a lot of commentary beyond the recommended next steps, but she was open to questions and always took them seriously and responded clearly.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Christina Broadwell at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals?
Write down your questions and bring them with you, so you don't forget them while meeting with her, and don't be afraid to ask them.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Christina Broadwell at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals?
She seemed happy to answer questions. She remembered what my husband and I do for work. She has a caring demeanor. She seemed concerned about my comfort during procedures.
Describe the protocols Christina Broadwell used in your cycles at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals and their degree of success.
As background, I had surgery for stage 2 endometriosis and I have lowish AMH (0.6-0.9). I started with 4-6 weeks of birth control. Once my cycle started, I was on micro-dose Lupron (10 units twice a day), Follistim (300 units), and Menapur (150 units). I believe the doses were fairly high due to my lower AMH and follical count. My first cycle I had 8 eggs retrieved, had a fresh transfer with a day 5 embryo, no embryos to freeze, and a negative test. Since Dr. Broadwell was happy with my egg response in the first cycle considering my AMH and AFC, there was no change to my medications or dosage for my second cycle, but I did take NeoQ10 for 5 months leading up to it. The NeoQ10 was mentioned by Dr. Broadwell as an option - neither strongly encouraged or discouraged. Second cycle had 17 eggs retrieved, fresh transfer with a day 5 embryo, 3 embryos frozen on day 6, and a positive pregnancy test.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals.
All my interactions were positive. They were very quick to respond. I liked that they had an online message system available, so I could message questions in rather than call. The IVF coordinator was very patient in helping me transfer my prescriptions among pharmacies to help me with insurance coverage. The materials they provided were easy to understand.

Fortunately we had some insurance help, so it was hard to parse out the original clinic charges with the after-insurance charges, but in general the charges seemed in-line with the estimates on their website.

Describe the protocols Christina Broadwell used in your cycles at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals and their degree of success.
We decided to do a hysterscope to see how my ovaries look and to check on the cyst that I have had for years! By doing that, it resulted in surgery to remove a few polyps and the cyst, they found that I actually had endometroisis. This surgery probably saved lots of heartbreak and by not doing it years ago (because no other fertility suggested it) created lots of heartbreak. We have also found out that my AMH level is low, so with my age also, we decided to do donor egg. My first round of treatments actually was cancelled because my estrogen levels were off and I had fluid in the cavity area where implantation would happen. I am now on the second round. Hoping all goes well!

Describe the protocols Christina Broadwell used in your cycles at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals and their degree of success.
After completing our HSG and discovering that I had a very low AMH level, our course of treatment was IUI. We started on 100mg of Clomid and had a good response. Unfortunately that cycle did not end in a pregnancy. For our second cycle, we kept the same treatment plan and only ended up with 1 follicle and a very low lining. For our third cycle we upped the Clomid to 150mg and it was ROUGH. I felt horrible, hot flashes, night sweats, moody-ness and was so nauseated. We were able to get three follicles and a decent lining, but again ended in a negative pregnancy test. The fourth round was better, we switched to Letrozel and had a great response! We had FOUR big fluffy follicles and a great lining. We usually do not trigger same day, but needed to this time. There was less then 24 hours between our trigger and IUI. We think this may have been the reason that the IUI was not successful. We are currently in our TTW for cycle #5. We kept the same treatment as cycle four, but only had one follicle and a decent lining. (over 7mm)

How was your experience with Christina Broadwell at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals?
As far as I can tell, Dr. Broadwell work in a very close partnership with the NP on her team. It’s not totally clear to me whether I’m Dr. Broadwell’s patient or Vickie’s patient. As far as my other doctors are concerned, I’m Dr. Broadwell’s patient and even as far as Generations staff, it’s sometimes confusing. I think Vickie is great and I have always been able to be seen when needed so their practice style works for me. Dr. Broadwell has been very warm and caring through this process. It is incredibly stressful and she’s been able to put be at ease equally in the procedure room and consult room.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Christina Broadwell at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals?
Whoever you schedule your assessment with will be the primary provider of your care. Dr. Broadwell takes longer to get into but that may be worth it to you to ensure she is undoubtedly managing your care as opposed to providing consults as needed.

I love having Dr. Stanic-Kostic as my primary. He has demonstrated several times that he won’t leave our appointment until we are comfortable and have asked all our questions. He has brought in studies and data even to help explain and share why certain results may have fluctuated between tests. He is very careful with sharing he different sides to think about without making me feel guilted into picking a certain option. It is a perfect example of sharing data, and advising but leaving the ball in our court. He is very honest based on research which I respect. That said he is very empathic. Ive never felt like a burden with him even when I have hundreds of questions.
The environment [at Generations and UW-Middleton] is comfortable and the staff is very friendly. I’ve enjoyed everyone so far I’ve worked with. I also like the information packets they have available on the specific IUI and IVF treatments. I wish I would’ve asked for these upfront to help me not ask my 100 questions when I was still trying to decide the treatment route I may be comfortable with. I communicate a lot over Mychart with this clinic and it has been a life saver with trying to communicate and get my questions to the clinic while still working. Take advantage of this great tool and their service. I also enjoyed how the resources were all right there at the one location for the psychology support and the financial advisement too.

It is a perfect example of sharing data, and advising but leaving the ball in our court. He is very honest based on research which I respect. That said he is very empathic. Ive never felt like a burden with him even when I have hundreds of questions.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Aleksandar Stanic-Kostic at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals?
Come prepared with your questions and get them to him ahead of time. Prepare to listen and get the answers throughout his explanation vs in numerical order. Also plan for extra time longer than your appointment since he will take time to give extensive answers to help you understand.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Aleksandar Stanic-Kostic at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals?
We were never rushed and he always took the time to answer all of my 100+ questions. He even called me from his child’s sporting event to help explain some results to me that I was really worried about. He expresses empathy and always makes me feel like he did his homework and gives me facts and research so I feel like I am making the decision but at the same time know his expert opinion too
Describe the protocols Aleksandar Stanic-Kostic used in your cycles at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals and their degree of success.
We did two rounds of letrozole with IUI and now are going into IVF
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals.
Nursing staff has been amazing. They reply to my questions so quickly and are great at making me feel comfortable through being available to get my questions answered timely.
Describe your experience with Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals.
The environment is comfortable and the staff is very friendly. I’ve enjoyed everyone so far I’ve worked with. I also like the information packets they have available on the specific IUI and IVF treatments. I wish I would’ve asked for these upfront to help me not ask my 100 questions when I was still trying to decide the treatment route I may be comfortable with. I communicate a lot over Mychart with this clinic and it has been a life saver with trying to communicate and get my questions to the clinic while still working. Take advantage of this great tool and their service. I also enjoyed how the resources were all right there at the one location for the psychology support and the financial advisement too.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Aleksandar Stanic-Kostic at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals.
IVF package price for cycle one is just under $12,000; excluding medicine which is expected to be $3-6k. Also excludes the embryo cryopreservstion and storage which is $725 was our $58 per month; excludes a frozen sperm backup which is additional $315 plus $33 monthly. IVF round 2 with the frozen embryos is $3,690 with medicine being additional $500-1500. Plus uterine mapping charge of $470. Don’t forget the sperm frozen backup cost if needed and the monthly fees you may still have from left over embryos. IUI was partially covered under our insurance so I can’t remember the cost breakdown.

How was your experience with Laura Cooney at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals?
Dr Cooney shows genuine compassion her patients, even when (or maybe ESPECIALLY when) a patient has been told by a prior doctor to stop trying to conceive altogether. She has a great knowledge of the field, and very openly shared all relevant statistics with us whenever we had a question. She also made us feel like we weren’t a lost cause, and that though the chance wasn’t guaranteed...there was a chance. And now we’re expecting! So we will be forever grateful for Dr. Cooney and the Generations team.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Laura Cooney at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals?
My advice would be don’t be afraid to ask questions. She is extremely knowledgeable, and willing to answer any question to help put you at ease.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Laura Cooney at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals?
Dr Cooney spoke very candidly with us about the expectations that we should have. She was very compassionate, while ensuring that we have realistic expectations. As our first cycle with a different doctor had failed, Dr. Cooney was careful to not “guarantee” that we could get pregnant, while being optimistic enough that it COULD happen (and it did!). We also felt as though Dr Cooney was genuinely rooting for our success.
Describe the protocols Laura Cooney used in your cycles at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals and their degree of success.
Dr Cooney adjusted my protocol slightly to account for improving our odds with the first round. That said, the protocol was relatively standard. The lab allowed our embryos to grow out to day 7, which is when they both went to blastocyst.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals.
The nursing staff at generations was knowledgeable and compassionate.
Describe your experience with Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals.
The strengths of this clinic are the knowledge of the staff, the ability and willingness to adjust/try new things of a cycle didn’t go well, and the research to stay up with the most recent trends/treatments. The only weakness was the lack of a payment plan for IVF, as it can be pretty pricy.

At Generations, the doctors and the embryology lab meet as a group on Mondays to discuss all of the embryos created that week, to form a recommendation on how to proceed (implanting 1 or 2). However, this is simply a recommendation. Generally, I believe they recommend one embryo, but in some cases will recommend two. But it’s always your choose how to proceed.

We were able to see Dr. Broadwell at every appointment. She remembered our names and faces without looking in the chart. She also remembered specifics about both myself and my husband which made us feel less like a number... She is very knowledgeable, but talks to you in a way that you can understand what she is saying.... reach out to her if you have any questions. She always has a speedy response.... For my FET. We used Lupron (started with 10ml and reduced to 5ml)
The clinic [Generations & U of Wisconsin Hospitals] is very easy to get to and is very clean. The online "my chart" website is extremely helpful. Only down side is there is no bathroom directly connected to the rooms where transfers and major ultrasounds are done.... The nurses seem to be very knowledgeable and compassionate as well. Many of them exhibit the same great qualities as Dr. Broadwell. They are also very quick with responses if you reach out to them with a question.

For my FET. We used Lupron (started with 10ml and reduced to 5ml), estradiol patches (started with one and moved up to 4 at a time), and progesterone in oil (1cc). At this point, I have had a positive pregnancy test, just waiting to go in for the first ultrasound. My previous doctor/FET had me using estradiol pills instead of patches, I prefer the patches!

Describe Christina Broadwell's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals.
With a unicornuate uterus (about half the size of a "normal" uterus) it was highly recommended and strongly encouraged that we only transfer one embryo at a time. We were allowed to make the decision for ourselves. After we were provided all the information necessary to make that decision, we agreed to transfer only one embryo.

Describe the specific things that went wrong at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals.
I may be wrong, but when I showed up for my baseline ultrasound appointment, it seemed that I wasn't on their schedule. The front desk called back to the nurses and Dr. Broadwell and they got me right in, no wait. Either way, everything worked out fine.

Dr Broadwell has the best bedside manner and was always so warm and welcoming when I went to the office.

Describe the protocols Christina Broadwell used in your cycles at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals and their degree of success.
We had previously done 3 medicated cycles with Clomid and Letrozole at a previous clinic. We switched providers due to insurance and Generations was so accommodating to continuing the same protocol. We moved on to IUI x3 rounds with Letrozole, estrogen supplement, and progesterone supplement. We have unexplained infertility and have been trying to conceive for 2 years
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals.
I didn’t have to meet with the nursing staff that often, but the time when I called to inform them of the start of my cycle or any questions, they were responsive and considerate of needing to move to the next step.

The facility is brand new and up to date which is reassuring, knowing that I am getting the best care possible.

We live in Illinois and it is a 2 hr drive for each office appointment.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Christina Broadwell at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals.
Our insurance covers a lifetime max of $10,000 and 50% of all fertility related needs. We currently have paid for nothing due to insurance denying claims and waiting for them all to be reviewed.

What specific things went wrong at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals?
  • Failed to convey critical information
Describe the specific things that went wrong at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals.
They provided a referral for the insurance company for our 1st IUI, but failed to tell us that we needed one for each procedure and labs after that. That resulted in the other IUIs being denied by insurance and thus causing a battle with insurance and payment for procedure.

Dr. Brodwell is very friendly, bubbly, person and easy to talk to. She is very personable and will listen and answer all your questions. I believe it is a lot easier to connect and communicate with a female regarding fertility issues.... In our case due to my genetic inversion during IVF cycle I was on pretty high dose of hormones to produce the biggest amount of eggs possible.... The Dr. doesn't believe in any help from additional medication like Q10 to help increase success rare and boost quality and quantity of eggs.
The clinic [Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals] has easy access and is located in a quite, separated part of town. The clinic is fairly small and I wish the waiting room could be a little bigger. The meeting rooms with doctor could be bigger as well. The Ultrasound rooms are fully equipped and spacious.... The nursing staff most of the time was very professional and skilled for the job.... The IVF Cycle was 13,500 plus cost of drugs which was between 4000-6000 and NGS genetic testing 2400.

To ask for numbers not percentages regarding success rates of ivf cycles and embryo transfers. It will create a lot better picture of the possible outcome
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Christina Broadwell at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals?
The Dr. was always very friendly and personable to us and calling us by name. We were always greeted very warmly and welcoming by all the stuff members. The doctor was always very optimistic and smiling. I am overall satisfied with care expect the fact that with our genetic situation and me being a carrier of inversion on chromosome we were giving optimistic not realistic numbers regarding our chances of success. The Dr. doesn't believe in any help from additional medication like Q10 to help increase success rare and boost quality and quantity of eggs. The clinic is great and has a big potential but with our situation maybe it is just a lot harder to conceive with IVF.

Our first consultation with Dr. Lebovic was a full hour long. He listened to us and did not treat us any differently due to my young age. I had visited other doctors who would not take me seriously due to being in my young 20s. Dr. Lebovic truly cared about us!... was great at making us feel heard. He also did not drag anything out. We got right to the point in finding the best things that would work for us to get pregnant. In addition, he did not sugar coat things. For us, that was good, but I know many people would not like that.
The nurses and care coordinators [at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals] were always extremely responsive. I never felt like I was waiting too long to hear back from them, and I never felt in the dark. Even when I moved to a new state, I was able to call and talk to one of them to ask what my protocol was. They are so nice!...This is a beautiful clinic with a team who seems to really care. One thing that I think is a strength is that it is associated with UW. I feel this gives the clinic more credibility. Also, I do not feel that the clinic is just out to make money.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Dan Lebovic at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals?
Go in there knowing that he is really there to help you. It is obvious that he is not there for the money. Also, he isn't there to waste time. He told us that if one treatment plan didn't work, we would do it three times and then discuss moving on. We didn't want to wait, so I'm happy we didn't have to. Though, I'm sure he would take it slower if that is what you want.

Describe the protocols Dan Lebovic used in your cycles at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals and their degree of success.
I had been diagnosed with PCOS prior to seeing Dr. Lebovic. I had done multiple rounds of Clomid with no ovulation. Dr. Lebovic induced a period. Then, I took Femara days 1-10 and deximethasone days 5-9. I had a monitored cycle with a trigger shot of Ovidrel on day 12 or 13. Then, we did timed intercourse. This worked the first time. We were very blessed. We are currently trying to conceive our second child at a different clinic (moved across the country), but they do not typically follow this protocol. I think it is a more aggressive protocol, but it worked well!

Dr. Stanic-Kostic talks a lot, but this is a positive because he spends as much time as necessary with every patient to answer all questions and provide as much information (and reassurance) as possible.
I truly believe that the hysteroscopy made the difference and that had that been done before, we would have avoided a lot of expense and heartache. I regret that we didn't come to Generations sooner.
How was your experience with Aleksandar Stanic-Kostic at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals?
We went to Generations after a lot of wasted time and money with another clinic. From the time we walked in the door for our first visit, we were treated with respect, and not like just another number. Dr. Stanic-Kostic spent a LONG time just talking to us, asking questions about our history, and explaining everything in great detail. He was very personable and understanding. The main reason we'd left the previous clinic was that they had refused to do ANY testing with either my husband or I, and just continued to put me on very high doses of medication. Dr. Stanic-Kostic agreed that this was not appropriate, and immediately ordered testing for both of us. For me, this included a hysteroscopy and saline sonogram to rule out any fibroids or abnormalities (that came back totally clear). My husband did a semen analysis, which showed only 1% morphology (but a very high overall count and excellent motility). However, with morphology being so low, our chances of becoming pregnant without IUI or IVF were very slim (this is why none of the treatments were successful with the previous clinic). The staff at Generations did a wonderful job of explaining the results to us and then helped us to plan a course of action, which was to include oral meds, injectable meds, and then and IUI. If that didn't work, we would move on to IVF. However, just two weeks later (while we were getting ready to order the injectable meds to start the IUI cycle) I found out I'm pregnant! I'm now 19 weeks along with a healthy baby girl! I truly believe that the hysteroscopy made the difference and that had that been done before, we would have avoided a lot of expense and heartache. I regret that we didn't come to Generations sooner.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Aleksandar Stanic-Kostic at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals?
Do not hesitate to make an appointment to see him! The only drawback is that he only works there 1 day per week (he's at UW the rest of the time). However, if he is not available, the other doctors in the clinic are, so you are always in good hands. Also, he is often running behind schedule for his appointments, but trust me this is a GOOD thing. It is because he takes as much time as necessary with every patient, and will not leave you until he is sure that you are feeling comfortable and informed. He is absolutely worth the wait.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Aleksandar Stanic-Kostic at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals?
We received AMAZING care at Generations. From the receptionists to the nurses and doctors, we were treated with nothing but compassion, professionalism, and attentiveness. Dr. Stanic-Kostic talks a lot, but this is a positive because he spends as much time as necessary with every patient to answer all questions and provide as much information (and reassurance) as possible.
Describe the protocols Aleksandar Stanic-Kostic used in your cycles at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals and their degree of success.
I had a hysteroscopy and saline infused sonogram, which found no abnormalities. However I believe it was successful in flushing out debris left from my previous miscarriage, as I ended up getting pregnant shortly after the procedure. Had this NOT been successful, the plan was to do a cycle with letrozole and injectable FSH with an ovidrel trigger and IUI. This would have also included a baseline ultrasound on cycle day 3 and a follicle scan. Dr. Stanic is very cautious and will cancel a cycle if there are more than 2 mature follicles.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals.
After finding out I was pregnant, I called the nurse at Generations, who was AMAZING. She completely understood my anxiety, given my previous miscarriage, and offered me blood draws and a 7 week ultrasound to ease my mind. And when my primary doctor (at Dean Clinic) messed up and mistakenly told me my blood levels were not rising appropriately, the nurse at Generations was right there to advocate for me, talk me through my panic, and get the issue straightened out immediately. When we came in for the 7 week ultrasound, she cried tears of joy right along with us as we saw that little heartbeat on the screen, presented us with a "Congratulations" card, and hugged us both. When this baby is born, I plan to send in pictures and a thank you card.
Describe your experience with Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals.
The clinic is very clean and professional and the lobby has a relaxing calming atmosphere.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Aleksandar Stanic-Kostic at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals.
Due to lack of insurance coverage (the clinic is out of network) we paid 50% up to a $2000 lifetime maximum and 100% for medications. Prices were very comparable to other clinics in the region.

While Dr Broadwell was great about explaining what was going to happen, I wasn't always sure about the why, especially as we got close to egg retrieval time as we watched my estrogen levels got higher and higher. Deciding when to trigger was the only part of my treatment that seems to be a mystery to me. Otherwise, I always felt like I knew what was happening, although fertility treatments in general aren't for the faint of hear, I think we must do our own research so we know what questions to ask.
$60,000! Whew! (But that also includes the separate costs of drugs and donor sperm) Without those extra costs: 5 IUIs approx. $639 each = 3195 3 IVF cycles $10,800- $12,800 each= $36,000...The clinic [Generations Fertility] feels like a really safe space. It is quiet and contemplative, almost spa like. I never felt like it was a business (even though it obviously is.)

Always ask why (about everything) . She will always happily and patently explain, but won't necessarily offer it up unless you inquire.

Success w/ Doc Too early to know
She has AMAZING bedside manner. During any appointment or procedure thus far she talks to us like we are humans. She breaks the medicine down in to verbiage we can understand. I can only imagine she is going to continue to do such throughout the rest of our process.... Never once did they push our concerns to the side. Dr. Broadwell has a great personality along with a fabulous bed side manner. She knows when it’s time to crack a joke and when it’s time to be concerned and considerate.
From the moment we walked in to Generations we knew they were going to help get us answers. Never once did they push our concerns to the side.... The clinic is easy to work with. If you call with a question if the receptionist does not know the answer they will always get the correct person involved to get the answer. Our test results were always quick and accurate. The results were explained to us, along with all of our options.

Our test results were always quick and accurate. The results were explained to us, along with all of our options. Financially the clinic was upfront with the costs. Letting us know when the payments would be due, as our insurance does not cover infertility. Even though they were upfront, they were not pushy with the financials.

Dr. Stanic-Kostic is very attentive to answer any questions you may have and explains the procedures as going along, as well as checking to make sure I am feeling comfortable. His bedside manner is warm and he is never rushed.... Great doctor only downfall is that he only works there 1 day per week. However, if he is not available, the other doctors in the clinic are great, so you are always in good hands.... Dr. Stanic-Kostic preformed my hysteroscopy to determine reason for why our fertility issues.
The clinic [Generations & U of Wisconsin] is very clean and professional. The lobby has a relaxing, calming atmosphere and very spacious. They have ample ultrasound and consult rooms. The staff keep the office very clean and organized.... Nursing staff was wonderful - always friendly and helpful. When not able to answer my questions immediately, they always called me back promptly with the answer.... IUI (1 ultrasound + sperm processing and IUI) $750ish per cycle

She [Dr. Christina Broadwell] was always willing to answer my questions fully. I had a lot of them as I was no stranger to the fertility family. I was wanting to try different approaches and she was willing to try them. The result ended up in 3 beautiful babies!...There were so many [protocols] ! I tried oral and hybrid cycles. The hybrid cycles were the ones that ended up with 2 babies under Christina Broadwells care.
Some of them [nurses at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals] were very personable and others not so much. Some of the nurses were not interested in hearing that I ovulate early and said that isn't protocol. I had to have them get the doctor to talk to, to get my plan changed...you don't always see your doctor nor do you always see the same nurses... I tried oral and hybrid cycles. The hybrid cycles were the ones that ended up with 2 babies under Christina Broadwells care.

They should definitely ask questions and educate themselves. You are your best advocate. The doctors are there to facilitate, but only you know your body.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Christina Broadwell at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals?
I have been to a clinic where you always see the same nurse and same doctor. Generations you basically see whomever is scheduled that day (doctor and nurse).

Describe your experience with Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals.
As stated previously, it is that you don't always see your doctor nor do you always see the same nurses. Also, you know your body best the nurses don't and they are not the doctors. Make sure your concerns are addressed with the doctor.

They are high.

I met with dr. Broadwell to plan the iui- she was very clear on what I needed to do and what to expect. We made the plan and I followed it - my iui was on a Sunday with another dr at generations. I always felt comfortable if I needed to call dr. Broadwell with more questions....I had the iui as a single woman using a sperm donor and they helped me figure out what to do every step of the way!... I used letrozole, trigger shot, and iui 36 hours after trigger. It worked on the first try!
